Oct 20, 2009

Attention Home Sellers: Achieve Your Sale in a Weary Market by K. L. Spaulding and Bernice Eller-Saleh seeks to provide homeowners with step-by-step instructions to make the most of an overcrowded real estate market. Today's real estate market has an overabundance of sellers and far fewer buyers, say authors and real estate experts Spaulding and Eller-Saleh. In Attention Home Sellers, they help homeowners showcase their living quarters inside and out to get the advantage in selling their homes. The authors advise on colors, furniture and accessories. They explain why owners need to de-clutter their homes and where, how and why they should put plants inside and out. Attention Home Sellers also advises how to choose a realtor, pre-pack and how to protect the safety of personal belongings, pets and oneself when showing a home to strangers. Authors Spaulding and Eller-Saleh both work in the home staging business and know how to get a home to put its best face forward with interior design and remodeling. Properly preparing a home can get sellers a better price, advise the authors, and can help sellers get the attention of a buyer over other homes that are also for sale. Full of tips, tricks and personal anecdotes and clearly written in layperson's terms, Attention Home Sellers aims to be an invaluable guide in today's tough market. K. L. Spaulding works in interior design, remodeling and started her own staging business in 2006. Bernice Eller-Saleh is a photographer who also works in the staging business.
